Color was key in Jesse's very brown and dated side table makeover too.

Indeed, we can save a lot of money restructuring and redesigning our furniture instead of purchasing new ones. Aside from that, we can show our creativity through restyling our furniture so when guest come in for visit we can show it off. If we can do these makeovers in each and every item in the house we can save a lot of money!
